Sensex extends gains to 4% on day

business Updated: Feb 14, 2008 13:10 IST

India's main stock market index rose more than 4 per cent on Thursday, led by index heavyweight Reliance Industries and bolstered by a rally in the global markets after fears of a US recession eased.

By 12:01 pm, the 30-share BSE index was up 4.05 per cent, or 686 points, at 17,635.09, with all but one of its components gaining.

The broader 50-issue NSE index was up 4.13 per cent at 5,133.05.
